West Side Mixed Martial Arts/Gracie Barra School in Katy, Texas, was founded in October 2006 and offers world-class level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction for individuals, families, and Law Enforcement Officials, and is being developed to become a reference for physical education, character development, self-defense, and world class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training at the communities of Katy, Texas and surrounding neighborhoods.

Our clean, friendly and progress oriented environment allows the students to have a challenging, inspirational and warm learning and training experience that always make them feel like coming back.

Gracie Barra Katy was created to be America’s finest Mixed Martial Arts institution. WSMMA is one of the largest MMA complexes in the United States. We have a 25X60 foot sprung loaded mat, a “Throwdown” Octagon, and a complete Olympic style weight room, conducive to both weight lifting and body building.

Students enjoy lounging in our 3 foyers watching combat videos on 2 high resolution flat screen televisions. Our pro-shop provides students with high quality gear and nutritional supplements at wholesale prices.

However, the most important trait of our facility is our student body. With over 250 members and growing the West Side has motivated people, in all shapes and sizes, with the common goal of self-improvement.

    This is a wonderful Gracie Barra Academy. The instruction is very technical — all of the instructors are national/international/champions, very patient,concerned, and great communicators. The classers are in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, San Shou , Kickboxing, Boxing, and Wrestling. The kids programs ( 3 to 6 years old )& ( 7 to 12 )Adults 13 on up may be one of the the best in the Nation. The curriculum covers all of the Gracie Fundamentals which number about 37 and took the Gracie Family about 75 years to perfect and they continue to do so. The Academy is pretty big with five different areas and two lobbies — it’s very clean — no cursing, no abuse , real practical, family focused, very unique calm but serious environment. A great place for individual achievement and to develop a wonderful family spirit. Have not seen any place with greater value and my two sons and daughter are a testament to the quality of this establishment.
